On Tuesday, Oldest was complaining that we “never do anything.” Which usually means that we aren’t spending money on her in some way, shape, or form. She can be rather spoiled at times and I don’t like it. But I do understand being bored and she does have a point, we never really “do” anything. We stay at home a lot. Other then the trip up to the wildlife preserve last month, we don’t get out much.

After the kids got out of ear shot, I told hubby that she was right about us, and I came up with the idea of going to the big park that isn’t too far away that we got to visit a couple of years ago. Besides a playground, they have a big splash pad for the kids to run through the water. I looked it up and the splash pad opened the previous Friday for the Summer. Yes! I told hubby that we needed to go this week. He didn’t have anything planned, not working on anything in particular, and I could rearrange the school work for Oldest so we could be gone as long as we wanted. We decided on Thursday, and even though it was crowded for not being the weekend, the kids had loads of fun. I don’t think Little L stopped. She ran and ran, was soaked from head to toe and loving every minute of it. Oldest is a bit more reserve, it takes her awhile to get into the mix, but she finally broke down and got wet. After they played in the water, we drove over to where the playground was. Unfortunately we should have went there first, because the sun was making the slides too hot to go down, even though they have sun shades over them. I let them play for awhile, then they both wanted to go back to the water. I didn’t blame them, so we headed back to the other side for some more fun. 🙂
